Dealing With Resentment & Anger – Sadhguru

Dealing With Resentment & Anger – Sadhguru


anger, resentment, hatred – these are all poisons that you drink and you expect somebody else to die. No, life doesn’t work like that. You drink poison, you die. It’s a very fair life (Applause). Superscript: Dealing With Resentment & Anger Moderator: So sir, when someone has wronged us or
has abused us in some way, we either have feelings of hostility and resentment… Sadhguru: Oh, we must file a suit (Laughter). Moderator: No, in a minor… in a minor sense
if they abuse us or if they wrong us, we sometimes have feelings of
resentment and hostility against them. And sometimes we might tend
to forgive them and let it go. So my question here is, where must we draw a line to hold the wrong-doer responsible for what he does and when should we know to forgive him and when should we know to let it go? So this is the question. Sadhguru: See, this is not about the other person. The choice for you is this – if you are given a choice – right now for all of you, if you are given a choice that you can either live joyfully, blissfully or miserably or
in anger or in stress, or in resentment, what is your natural choice? You must choose, I’m going to bless you right now. Participants: Joyful… Sadhguru: What is your natural choice? Participants: Joyfully… Sadhguru: Joyfully, isn’t it? Because every human being is looking for
highest level of pleasantness for himself, for herself. You can call it joy, you can call it bliss. These are just words. Essentially, we want highest level of
pleasantness for ourselves. If your body becomes pleasant, we call this health. If it becomes very pleasant, we call this pleasure. If your mind becomes pleasant, we call this peace. If it becomes very pleasant, we call this joy. If your emotions become pleasant, we call this love. If it becomes very pleasant we call it compassion. If your very life energies become pleasant,
we call this bliss. If it becomes very pleasant, we call it ecstasy. If your surroundings become pleasant,
we call this success. Only to… (Applause) Only to make your surroundings pleasant,
you need the cooperation of all these people. Because in creating an external situation,
there are many forces involved. Not all of them you even know. Do you understand? You wanted to create a…
a wonderful situation for yourself, you don’t even know how many
forces are working in that area. If you harness a few forces,
if they cooperate, things will happen. If they don’t cooperate, it won’t happen. But for the pleasantness of the body, pleasantness of the mind, pleasantness of your emotion and energy, it’s one-hundred percent you. Yes or no? Participants: Yes. Moderator: Yes. Sadhguru: Surroundings. Creating situations in the surroundings you
need cooperation from the people, otherwise it won’t happen. So only for success, you need cooperation. To keep yourself pleasant
it’s one-hundred percent yours. So right now, you know well that
you want to be peaceful. But, somebody else is doing something. What are they doing? They doing what they know best. They are abusing you. Why are they doing it? Because that’s all they know. Yes or no? That is what… That is how they know their life. That’s why they are doing it. If you become resentful and you think something will happen to them… See, these are things – anger, resentment, hatred – these are all poisons that you drink and you expect somebody else to die. No, life doesn’t work like that. You drink poison, you die. It’s a very fair life (Applause). If you drink poison, you die. Very fair, isn’t it so? I drink poison and you die, is it fair (Few laugh)? So people who are in anger, resentment, hatred,
this is their thing. They are drinking poison. When I say poison, I am not saying in a moral sense. There is substantial medical evidence right now, that we can show you with a blood test that five minutes before… You take your blood test right now, five minutes you remain in extreme anger and take your blood test, you will see you are chemically poisoned, actually. So you are literally poisoning yourself,
thinking it’s going to hurt them. No. It’s only going to hurt you. So it doesn’t make sense to me. That’s all. It’s not a morality whether
you should get angry or not get angry. It’s up to you, if you want to make a messout of yourself.

  5. We all harbour moments of resentment and anger, yet the ones suffering most pain are us. Let go of the anger, if not out of forgiveness for those you perceive to have wronged you, but for your own health and wellbeing.

  50. He always avoid the main problem, anger starts automatically, it's not enough using logic

  51. should we take the credits of work we do?

  52. The ideology of the west is the poison it's drinking. I hope one day the west will drink the antidote of truth.

  53. but if one drinks poison and farts, then all die..

  54. I suppose the answer people are looking for is how to stop poisoning themselves because of natural their natural human reactions is to be mad and angry when hurt.

  55. Just 2.7 million for this Blessing for humanity. A lot many of us don't know the value of having a enlightened being like Sadhguru between us.
    I've never heard any body with a wisdom so profound yet so simple and connecting to all levels of audience , minds and consciousness.
    शत शत प्रणाम सदगुरु

  56. Nice topic n very relevant to everyone. Choices on our hand . Fully agreed.

  57. Exercise is a great antidote to releasing anger and resentment..Hatha Yoga is very good for this. As emotions especially negative one's reside in the muscles as well as the nervous system and the subconscious mind!!!!!

  58. And others will get angry with you because you don’t want to drink the poison

  59. Great question, thanks for asking. But, I did not feel Sadhguru answered it. Yes, we drink poison when we are resentful and harbor hatred towards abusers. It would be nice if we get a solution for coming out of anger and resentment, rather than letting us know the consequences, which obviously the victim might be experiencing already.

  60. Sadhguru didn't tell the solution?

  61. I just tell the part of me that is thinking about being resentful, "you can be resentful if you want," and before I know it, it dissipates..
